Thayeria is a genus of tetras from the Amazon Basin, and the Approuague and Maroni Rivers in tropical South America. It includes three species, including the blackline penguinfish, T. boehlkei. Members of this genus, among other characteristics, are small, have one lateral black stripe, and have a vesica piscis shape. They are peaceful.
Thayeria boehlkei, are excellent community members; they are easygoing and peaceful, yet active and friendly swimmers. It looks very cool when a larger school is all swimming in their unique partially-upright style.
Penguin tetras are schooling fish to the core, and are less fearful and defensive when they are in a group. When they are content in a group, they are less likely to lash out and nip at other fish.
